So if you looking for a plush, fancy hotel room, Garvey's is not the place for you but if your looking for clean, basic room, with a great location and possible the best staff I have ever met, Garvey's is the best. I had my Husband's surprise 40th in galway last weekend, and the staff went over and beyond for... More

Garveys is meant to be a hotel, yet the hotel door was locked and I had to walk through the entire bar to find reception. As soon as I checked in I was told that breakfast was extra, this is not evident on any booking form. The website said the hotel was recently refurbished, completely untrue. Old uncomfortable beds, very... More

It’s a pub with accommodation above on 3 floors, located on the corner of Eyre Square in the centre of the city and across the road from the railway station and bus terminus. I got a room on the top floor with a great view over the square, which is full of life and a great place to spend time... More

Very friendly staff greeted us at the bar on arrival and brought us to receiption to check in. Rooms are clean and supplied with tea/coffee making facilities, TV and what you don't get in a lot of places.... an Iron and Ironing Board... More

The rooms are above the first floor bar which has very loud live music late at night. It was impossible to sleep. The manager was not responsive to our complaint and in fact lied to us that the musicians would be playing in a different area after the first night.

I booked this at short notice through Booking.com for my visit to Galway last week. I was marginally aprehensive as the reviews were pretty mixed. What a great place, I'll definately stay here on all future visits to Galway. Slap bang in the centre, just a minutes walk from everywhere. The linen on the beds was spotless and the matress...

This was my fourth time staying at Garvey's Inn, and it is the only place I would ever stay in Galway. I stayed for two nights on September 24th and 25th, 2013. The location is just awesome. It is near everything (bus station, restaurants, bars). It is a very good price. The breakfast is fantastic. Wonderful staff at all hours... More
